The variables of the equation are: f which represents force, k which is called the spring constant and measures how stiff and strong the spring is, and x is the distance the spring is stretched or compressed away from its equilibrium or rest position. The following data were collected for part 1 of the lab procedure complete the table the force is due to the 60 experiment 11: simple harmonic motion procedure part 1: spring constant - hooke’s law 1 hang the spring from the pendulum clamp and hang.
Choose the planet of interest find the mass and radius in metric units, such as kilograms, meters, etc (radius = 1/2 of the diameter) of the planet you will have to convert kilometers, km, (for the diameter) to meters by multiplying the number of kilometers by 1000. Almost every planet has a different gravitational pull (gravitational force) the question is how do we find this force if it isn't given to us and we cannot measure it g = the gravitational constant m = the mass of the planet m = is your mass r = the radius of the planet f g = the gravitational force your mass | your weight | gravity or. Experiment 9 – spring constant aim it is called the force constant or the spring constant of the spring diagram procedure 1 suspend the spring from a rigid support attach a pointer and a hook from free end 2 hang a 20 g hanger from the hook.
2 calculate each force f (n) using equation (2) 3 calculate the elongation using equation (6) 4 calculate k from equation (5) 5 find the average value of k 6 find the range = k max - k min 7 find standard deviation using the range 8 express your answer as (k average ± _____) n/m 9. Force, we need to get hold of a 1 kg mass, have the force act on it somehow, and then measure the acceleration of the mass the magnitude of the acceleration tells us the magnitude of the force the direction of motion of the mass tells us the direction of the force fortunately, there are easier ways to measure forces.
9 plot a graph of the force f in newtons vs the elongation d in meters on a piece of 10mm to the cm graph paper 10 using a straight edge, draw a best fit line through your data points 11 find the slope of your best fit straight lie do not use original data points to calculate the slope the slope of the straight line is the spring constant. As an equation, hooke's law says that the force applied in newtons (or the restoring force -- it amounts to the same thing) is equal to the negative of the spring constant, k, of the material.
Experiment 6 the coefficient of friction equipment: 1 uli with force probe 1 inclined plane (see fig 6-1) procedure: 1 turn on the uli and the computer open the logger pro application go to highlight the constant force portion of your run determine the mean force the. Hooke's law states that the restoring force of a spring is directly proportional to a small displacement in equation form, we write f = -kx where x is the size of the displacement the proportionality constant k is specific for each spring the object of this virtual lab is to determine the spring constant k. In order to figure out how to calculate the spring constant, we must remember what hooke’s law says: f = – kx now, we need to rework the equation so that we are calculating for the missing metric which is the spring constant, or k.
Spring constant of a spring theory the following data were collected for part 1 of the lab procedure complete the table the force is due to the gravitational force all distances are measured from the bottom of the hanger to the top of the stool 60 experiment 11: simple harmonic motion procedure part 1: spring constant - hooke’s.
